Updated 3:45pm PT on 5/1/2018: I booked the timeshare vacation package and paid the $200 down payment. Scroll to the bottom of the post to see more details.
Good afternoon everyone, I seem to be the king of getting timeshare vacation package offers (Westin and Wyndham). I just got this offer from Hyatt for 4 days / 3 nights at the Hyatt Residence Club Carmel Highlands Inn. I love Carmel and Monterey Bay, so this offer grabbed my attention instantly. The cost is only $299 and includes 10,000 Hyatt points (worth ~$150 to me), so this offer seems like a no brainer. There is no unique offer code, so anyone can call in and get this offer. You must purchase by May 15 (2 weeks from now), but you have 12 months to complete your stay. You must also attend a 90-120 minute timeshare presentation, but don’t let that discourage you. Timeshare presentations are simple, just don’t buy anything.
Here are some of the photos of the resort. There are plenty more photos available here.
If you do not want 10,000 Hyatt points, you could opt for the $100 resort credit, but I think the Hyatt points are a much better deal. Also, it looks like the $299 price is for select dates, so depending on your dates, your stay may be more expensive than $299.
Lastly, here are the details and requirements to be eligible for the timeshare vacation package. I don’t think the terms are always enforced, but they could be.
Here are the complete terms & conditions of the offer:
ELIGIBILITY/HOW TO REGISTER: To participate in this offer and receive 10,000 World of Hyatt Bonus Points, you must purchase this package by May 15, 2018. To be eligible for this offer, you must travel during the Promotional Period and:
• Attend a 90-minute vacation ownership sales presentation (not exceed 120 minutes) at the Hyatt Residence Club sales gallery during your stay.
• Have an annual household income of at least $75,000 and be at least 25 years of age and cannot have attended a sales presentation at any Hyatt Residence Club resort in the past 12 months.
• If you are married or cohabitating, we require that both parties travel together as part of the package and attend the sales presentation.
View complete Details of Participation.
PROMOTION PERIOD: Purchase by May 15, 2018 and have 12 months to visit. If your schedule is uncertain, you may pay $200 now to accept this limited-time invitation, and pay the balance when you reserve your arrival date.

Updated 3:45pm PT on 5/1/2018: I called the number on the email to pay for the $200 down payment. I was on hold for 15-20 minutes before speaking to an agent. The agents are really busy right now with people booking this timeshare vacation package. I learned that if you want to visit with 10 days of a holiday (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years), the cost will be more than the $299 price. There is also limited availability, so you should lock in your travel dates sooner rather than later.
After paying the $200 down payment, here are the Details of Participation, listed on the bottom of the confirmation email:
